  • Tuition Waiver Plan

    The New School provides a tuition waiver benefit for eligible part-time faculty whose employment is covered by a collective bargaining agreement with Local 7902, ACT-UAW, and Local 802, AMF. Eligible family members include the faculty member's spouse, same- or opposite-sex Qualified Domestic Partner, and dependent children up to the end of the semester in which they turn age 24. The tuition waiver benefit applies to tuition and mandatory fees. Please read the Tuition Waiver Plan for PT Faculty Members for detailed information and potential tax implications.

    Applying for Tuition Waiver Benefits

    A Tuition Waiver Request Form must be completed and submitted to Human Resources (along with the required supporting documentation if the tuition waiver request is for a dependent — refer to the plan policy) before registering for a course. Once the application is approved by Human Resources, the individual will receive an email regarding the registration process. Otherwise, the employee will be billed by the university for the tuition and mandatory fees.
